INGREDIENTS

Crust
– 1 cup buckwheat flakes (change to nuts if you prefer)
– 8 dates

Chocolate Dream
– 2 cups cashew nuts (soaked)
– 2 bananas (more if desired)
– 8 dates
– 3 big tbl coconut oil
– 1/2-1 cup raw cacao
– 4 tbl agave syryp (or other sweetener)

Vanilla Spread

Raspberry Cream
– 1 banana
– 1 cup frozen raspberries
– 1 lime

Decoration
– Homemade peanut butter (optional)
– Raw cacao nibs

Start with making the crust by putting the ingredients in your food processor. Let ig go until you get a nice and crunchy texture. Divide it into your form. Put it in the fridge meanwhile you prepare the rest of the cake.

Now make the Chocolate Dream and put all the ingredients in your mixer. Blend until you get a nice and creamy texture. The more raw cacao you put in the more epic it will be. Cover the crust with your delicious Chocolate Dream paste. Put it in the freezer meanwhile you prepare next layers. Let it rest for at least 30 minutes before spreading next layer on it.

To make your Vanilla Spread simply put all the ingredients except water in your washed mixer. Add as little water as needed to make it smooth. Put it in a bowl and place it in your fridge.

You can make this cake in two ways. Either you want your Raspberry Cream liquid and prepare it when it is time to serve the cake or you make the Raspberry Cream now and add it to the cake and let the cake rest in the freezer unti it is time to serve.

Take out your Chocolate Dream and if decorate it with the peanut butter (optional). Cover the chocolate layer with Vanilla Spread.

Now make your Raspberry Cream by mixing the ingredients in your clean mixer. Spread it carefully over your cake.

Either you eat it directly or put it in your freezer and serve it later. Make sure to take it out a good while before eating, around 20-30 min.  dream cake 2Buon appetito! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did 🙂

Today´s powerful Words we found on Eckhart Tolle´s facebook page and we want to share them with you:

“Dear Friends,
May I suggest a deeper and somewhat unusual perspective on who you are?
You are not just a person, and you are not IN the Universe.
You ARE the Universe, which IN YOU is awakening, experiencing itself, becoming conscious. That consciousness is who you are in essence. We are all fleeting expressions of it. The Universe awakens THROUGH experiencing challenges and limitations. That means YOU awaken and deepen through your challenges, as does humanity as a whole. So welcome or at least accept all that life brings you. Change what can be changed, otherwise surrender to what IS. Feel the Presence within you as the background to every experience. Know that, as Jesus put it, “you are the light of the world.”
With love
Eckhart.”

Much love,

This time we wrote some meassurement and proportions but please use them only as guidlines depending how big you want your cake and the size of your ingredients. This cake is a pretty small one and would go for 3 people, depending how big appetite you have of course! 😉

Start with making your crust by simply put all the ingredients in your food processor.1365087047503

Make your chocolate mousse by putting the ingredients in your food processor. Mix until it is smooth and no chunks in it. Take half of the mousse and cover the crust. Place the other half in an other bowl meanwhile.We love carob and think it gives a nice touch together with raw cacao but if you donnot have it at home, feel free the replace it with raw cacao instead.

Wash your food processor. Add your ingredients for the banana coco and process until smooth. Cover gently the chocolate mousse with your banana coco cream. Do it carefully.

Now take the rest of your chocolate mousse and cover your banana coco cream layer. Put it in your freezer and let it sit for an hour or more, depending on how big your form is. Take it out a good while before serving. Enjoy it with berries – bon appetite!!!

Before we let you go and make this delicious cake we want to share some very powerful words by Dr. Wayne Dyer with you. We hope you will take your time and truly try to make the effort to live after them: 

”Fear is a big obstacle in the excuse catalog. A course in miracles tells us that there are only two emotions we can experience: love and fear. If we can find out ways to stay in a space of love, then fear is an impossibility.” 

With our hearts,
